FANS of Status Quo queued for hours today to get their hands on signed copies of the band's new autobiography.
People started queuing at Waterstones in Ipswich Town Centre three hours before Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt turned up to the signing event.
About 300 people joined the queues, many of whom had been at the band's sell-out concert at Ipswich Regent last night.
Francis said: “We've been getting the crowds to buy our books wherever there has been a signing session, people just seem to want to get hold of it.”

First in the queue today were Dennis and Gail Thompson from Hadleigh Road, in Ipswich. Mr Thompson said: “We've been fans of them for many years. I've not been able to get to the concerts because I'm working at night but it will be great to meet them.”

Jeanette Mayhew was in the queue waiting to buy the book as a Christmas present for her husband Brian - who was standing beside her to make sure he also got to meet his idols.
Jeanette, of Nacton Road, said: “We try to see them whenever we can, they did a great concert last night at the Regent and this will be the perfect Christmas present for Brian. I was here at half past nine this morning, just a few minutes after the lady at the front of the queue”.
